I couldn't find a video of that revolver, but I did find this. Looks like it has one hell of a recoil.

Its a Maadi-Griffin .50 BMG handgun. I have seen one, but it had a little longer barrel, and was on a tripod

Guns that are "tactical" or "military-style" have no legitimate civilian purpose, other than to kill people.

The thing that holds the bullets is a "clip"
Every handgun is a "Glock"
Every rifle is a "sniper rifle"
Every semi auto sporting rifle is an "assault rifle", "bushmaster", or "AK47"
Revolvers have safeties.
The M-14 is an "automatical M1 garand" (I have heard that exact comment)
.22s can't kill you
You can kill someone with a 12 gauge flare.
Tracers light people on fire.
The military uses "dragon's breath" shotgun ammo.
You can "blow up railroads and shoot down planes" with a semi-auto.
Grenade launchers are "on the streets"
.50 caliber rifles are "on the streets"
Civilians can buy machine guns at their LGS.
The Arisaka can shoot .30 caliber ammo.
The Mauser can shoot .30 caliber ammo.
The Tec-9 is the best "machine pistol"
Glocks are plastic guns.
"Bullet-proof vests" are bulletproof.
You can buy "invisible bullets" that leave no evidence.
You can buy "cop-killer" bullets that explode in people.
I have had someone try to tell me the P90 shoots the same round as the M92.
.223 and 5.56 are the same exact cartridge.
The M16 tumbles bullets.
A loaded gun is ok if the safety is on.
Flamethrowers are highly illegal.

That's all I can think of right now.

While yes, those are guns that can shoot underwater, I hardly think I would consider them anything like what the average gun owner would have sitting in their safe, such as the GLOCK comment that got my attention.

Damn, some people take **** so seriously.

Nah I never that things like that seriously, I just was interested in seeing if anyone had maybe built a pistol that would work repeatedly underwater, and that was all I found.

Meant no offense to you Trip, you're a great guy and I enjoy reading what you have to say.

I checked and Specialty Sports has these back ordered. This load shown is a little light for hunting North American Drone!

Shoot as many as you can before they breed this spring. Not very good eating. Be careful while hunting them because they have been known to shoot back. Also you need a really, really big dog to retrieve them. Try not to kill too many in one spot because armed angry men in black armored Suburban’s show up to check your license. Wal-Mart doesn’t have the North American Drone stamp yet. I am on the list for one. At least that is what the sales guy said, something about being on a list.

A bad guy, at a full gallop on a horse, can be shot by a good guy, also at a full gallop on a horse, one handed, without using the sights, at a few hundred yards.

(And their hats don’t fall off neither!)

As my Mom used to day, "Good enough for Government inspection." She was a civilian that worked for the air force for many years when they had a base at OHare Airport.

Oh, come on. That one is TRUE. I've seen it on TV many times over the years.
